In my battlegroup in 2v2 the moment you approach 1600 you get a nonstop string of full season 3/tier 6 teams until you get back down to around 1550. Is there anything you can do? This is out of hand. Any thoughts?

prob just choosing a bad day to play, it shouldnt be like that most of the days.

try playing on a different day/time, if it is still like that, you have bad luck. you can always try and dodge those teams right?

Tried playing different times, same thing every day, any hour of the day. Tried early am, late am, mid day, early pm, late pm, midnight. Always the same.

That is standard, good gear does not mean that they are good players. In short, get better.

You can also queue on raid nights to dodge the majority of them.

I'm good at my class. My problem is every partner i get stuck with is terrible and I can't find anyone who isn't. One of my friends call this server the skill-less cesspool. And theres no garauntee I would get better xfering elsewhere.

Examples: Holy paladin with 400 resil who didn't use hammer of justice, blessing of freedom, or judgement of justice after two weeks of me yelling at him for not using it.

Ele shaman I'm with now doesn't use purge, doesn't know how to apply pressure to the other team to get healers in range, doesn't use line of sight or kite or heals, blows cooldowns at the wrong times.

Rogue before this, terrible gear. Worse the bad.

Rogue prior to this, same terrible gear.

Hunter before this, terrible gear, didn't use cc or stings effectively, or kite.

Double enhance before this, bad setup. High burst, mediocre utility, but easily cc'd.

look at your setup. try running with a priest, there's a team here that does extremely well with that combo. two random classes throw together aren't often perfectly syncing classes. dont be afraid to change up your team to reach a higher rating.

I'm playing 2v2 because everyone on my server hates enhance shaman. Can't find a 3v3 or 5v5 having been looking for about a year.

Every single team on my battlegroup is either full season3 or fulls1 being carried by full a full s3 partner. This is retarded.

In our battlegroup, horde lose every wsg, ab, eots, and win 60% of av.
You also lose every arena game 1600+ in 2v2, 1500+ in 3v3, and 1600+ in 5v5 unless you have full season3 for every member.

I would suggest Emberstorm or Retaliation for someone of your apparently awful caliber.

The situation you describe is normal. At this point in the season, 9 people out of 10 will have 4/5 S3 and most will have weapons. It's just something to deal with. Get better and outplay them, and take heart in the fact that next season there will be a lot lot less people who illegitimately got that gear and you'll be playing against people who deserve to be there.

By the way, I played Pally/Warrior in that battlegroup the other day and got to 1800 relatively easily, and we're both in S2, the warrior had an S2 sword and not mace, old mains. It's not that bad.

I could have sex with a cactus and produce an offspring combo of man/cactus/man-cactus that would break 2300 like it's nothing, but instead I've got this combo that goes to **** if anything we do goes wrong.

1) Gear does not make them good. You can get 2k in full season 1 easily with a viable make-up. I've gotten 2k undefeated wearing my S1 gear for fun.
2)Your spec is bad. 8/53 enhance? What is that even for? Go get a real enhancement spec, or flat out go Resto if you wanna be successful in 2s.
3)The attitude of "I'm a great player, but all my partners suck" is absolutely ridiculous. Blaming everyone else for your losses is a great cop out.

Coming from 2 druids, the most overpowered arena class in the game, I'm not putting...well...any merit at all in what you say. Of course you got an easy 2k, having a druid myself I know how easymode the class is.

But I'm a shaman, which happens to be the worst arena class currently in the game. There is no cookie cutter team as an enhance shaman. And I have worked too hard and too long to respec resto. And as for elemental, elemental sucks nowadays after the 4 piece bonus nerf.

My Hunter still uses Season 1 honor gear.
